to be here today and discuss with you cbo's outlook for the budget and economy for the next 10 years. are analyzing shows that the country continues to debate a very large economic challenges. i will discuss the economy first and then i will turn to the budget. we anticipate economic growth will remain slow this year because of the gradual improvement in underlying economic factors will be offset. the good news is that the effects of the financial and housing prices appear to be gradually fading. we expected a upswing in housing construction and increasing availability of credit will help spur a virtual cycle of income, consumer spending, and business investment over the next few years. however several policies that will help bring down the budget deficit will result in a drag in economic activity. the increase in tax rates and the cuts in federal spending scheduled to take effect next month will mean reduced spending by both households and the government. we project an inflation adjusted gdp will increase by about 1.5% in 2013. it would increase roughly 1.5 percentage point faster w

constituents and to the economies of our states. and when barriers present a significant segment of our population from participating in the workforce, talent is being wasted and our economic competitiveness suffers. and for individuals with disabilities, employment outcomes have not improved since 1990. during the recent recession, employment realities for people with disabilities got even worse. workers with disabilities left the workforce as five times the average rate. the median income for these workers is less than two thirds the median wages for other workers. so that is why i chose this initiative, building a better bottom line, employing people with disabilities. we can do better and we must do better. an estimated 55 million americans -- one in five -- has a disability. it's the largest minority population in our country and disability crosses every demographic and it's the one minority population that any one of us could fall into on any day. anybody who can work and wants to work should have the opportunity to do so. advancing employment opportunities for individuals with di

to happen. the impact on the economy would be terrible for american families. we don't want it. we think it is bad policy. it was designed to be bad policy. that was the whole point. the sequester was written in a way that would assure that congress would never let it happen. >> by putting it off, it could work to your advantage perhaps? >> i think you're misunderstanding or maybe we're not doing a good enough job trying to convince you. we support efforts in congress to buy down the sequester but they should come back and do it tomorrow or come back next week. buy it down so the sequester does not have an immediate effect and congress can get back to work and we can get that $4 trillion in deficit reduction that analysts have called for. we've been working for that. up to $2.7 trillion in deficit reduction has been achieved thus far. our deficit is coming down but we need to do more work to make sure that process continues. that's what we want, that's what the president wants. >> i have a question about cyber crime among other things. what can we expect? >> i think if you're talking a t

of civil society, the economy itself, and the states, depend on that kind of maturity but cannot themselves provided. as well as the stabling commitment of a mother and father. that is what gets the state involved in marriage. it is the social need to promote the stabilizing norms. it is those very stabilizing norms that i say are undermined in principle, and then over time, in practice, as we internalize the idea that marriage is just companionship, that it has no more internal requirements and companionship does, which is a very broader category. note what this highlights. this suggests that, if the norm of sexual complementarity is arbitrary, just a traditional holdover, then so is permanence. so is exclusivity. so is monogamy. why do i say that? very often people say, we can cross those bridges when we get there. you do not have to worry today about polyamorous relationships and so on. i think the logic of those positions does not allow that answer. the logic of their position is that what makes a marriage's emotional union is arbitrary, requiring sexual commentary, which is not essenti

-commerce throughout the u.s. economy. it also reflects the changing realities of america's mailing habits. we would urge congress to eliminate any impediments to our new delivery schedule. market research conducted over the last few years has shown consistently high levels of support from the public for a new delivery schedule. just this morning, cbs news released a poll that said 71% of the public supports the new delivery schedule. the postal service also conducted a poll this weekend, which showed an 80% support level. although discussion about our delivery schedule gets a lot of attention, it is just one important part of a larger strategy to close our budget gap. it accounts for $2 billion in cost reductions while we are seeking to fill a $20 billion budget gap. during the 112 congress, the senate passed several reforms sought by the postal service. we do believe it can provide a framework for swift action in the current congress. there are several key provisions needed and legislative reforms for our business model. these include requiring the postal service to sponsor its own health care sys

would do great harm to our economy. it is important to realize that preventing these devastating cuts is just a first step areas unless we come up with a credible plan to reducing health care spending going forward, we will ultimately end up in the same place with other costs, equally blunt, and other approaches that do not make any sense. that is why more efforts to accelerate the transformation of care are needed. i know that the ama has put forward a plan to do just that. it is encouraging to see recommendations for reducing unnecessary care, advanced by specialty societies in choosing wisely. physicians need to continue to play a major leadership role. your leadership also goes, not only to the health transformation part of the new law, but the second part of the law. that is expanding access to affordable coverage so more individuals can access care from the outset. this is a goal that the ama and america's doctors have supported for decades. you, better than anyone, understand the consequences of going without health insurance. you see it in patients who do not fill the prescrip
